Since version 3.6.0 Contentz have had support to slides, but starting version 3.10.0 it has full support. What does this mean? You can now create a
slides folder with a MDX file and it will be transformed to a slide deck.
Creating a Slide Deck
Create the folder
mkdir slides and inside a
.mdx file, let's name it
introducing-contentz.mdx. Inside this file you should use Frontmatter to define the following supported metadata:
title, the title displayed in the list of slides and the browser tab.
date, the date when it was published, it will be used in the list.
published, to hide the slide from
description, a few words describing the talk, it will be used in the list.
Then write the content, to divide slides use the separator
---. Contentz will split the file using those characters and create a single HTML per each part.
Each slide deck will be placed in
public/slides in a directory with the same name of the MDX file. Inside it will have an
index.html with the first slide and the next slides will be named with a number starting at 1 (eg.
Contentz will also create an
public/slides with a list of all the slides, similar to the list of articles or links. It will be linked in the header of the website with the title
Talks if it exists.
